Eastern MA mushroom crop
At Broadmoor Wildlife Sanctuary in Natick
This has been an excellent growing season for mushrooms in Eastern Massachusetts, with lots of steamy warm weather. They seem to pop up everywhere. I think Dr. John Halamka would tell me that these are all polypore mushrooms. The one above was seen at the Massachusetts Audubon sanctuary in Natick. The one below is growing out of a tree on Marshall Street in Brookline.
And the ones below, well, they are growing in my back door, which was poorly installed and wicked water into its core. I think this is what is known as "Massachusetts grown . . . and fresher." Pretty, but not enough for dinner.
